Objectivist Blog Carnival

Welcome to the April 19, 2012 edition of the Objectivist Round Up and the 13th time that Erosophia has hosted. This week I want to put up three quotes to remind everyone that nothing should be outside the purview of reason: “Tell me what a man finds sexually attractive and I will tell you his […]

Review: The Selfish Path to Romance

Today’s quote is from Jean-Baptiste Say: Alas, how many have been persecuted for the wrong of having been right? If you have never read Say, he is worth reading and is a clear […]
